District of Squamish is planning to replace as many as 12 roof areas over five different levels at the local Municipal Hall on Second Avenue.
Some of the roofs are more than 30 years old and beyond their service life, according to a district report.
A roof consultant examined the roofs in July 2020 including a visual inspection and core cutting for moisture detection.
Most of the roofs have leaked over the last 10 years, and moisture was found in several roof areas under the surface.
The consultant’s report identified a number of critical repairs required to prolong the life of the roofs for up to approximately 5 years.
The roof replacement is one among several capital projects staff and council discussed at a budge workshop last month.
The report in the workshop didn’t provide an estimate of how much it would cost to replace the roof areas.
Meanwhile, district is also planning HVAC replacements at the municipal hall.
The 10 units that provide heat and cooling and fresh air at Municipal Hall are currently more than 20 years old.
Many are in disrepair and are close to failing and beyond repair.
“The approval for the project will ensure there is minimal disruption to the provision of acceptable air quality to staff at Municipal Hall in the case of a failure,” says the report from the workshop.
“Any new roof top units that are purchased can be moved to and re purposed at a different building if Municipal Hall is demolished.”
